Netflix has cancelled the Santa Clarita Diet, a very popular show. Why? who knows. But some of their shows have become too expensive to continue to produce.
There will be no fourth season for Netflix’s dark comedy series Santa Clarita Diet as the streaming giant has opted to cancel the series starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphanrt. The news comes almost a month after the March 29 release of the show’s third season.
“The world had never known a ‘zom-com’ until Santa Clarita Diet, and we’re indebted to creator Victor Fresco for bringing this idea to Netflix,” the Internet network said in a statement. “To their endless credit, the incredible Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant were totally game, with an uncanny knack for comedy that brought Sheila and Joel Hammond to vibrant life, even though one of them was undead. We’re grateful to Victor, Drew, and Timothy, along with fellow executive producers Tracy Katsky, Aaron Kaplan, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell and the terrific cast, including Liv Hewson and Skyler Gisondo, and crew for three hilarious seasons for Netflix members to discover for years to come.”
Now, for some good news. There is a lot of fan “Outcry” about the canceling of the show, and usually networks pay attention. Will the show find a new home? Only time will tell. In the meantime, here’s what’s currently trending on Netflix and some upcoming shows.
